 Well, I believe the meaning of ignorant is not knowing.

Unfortunately individuals who don't know the truth about the history of America or  the truth about world history or world civilizations do tend to be ignorant. 

White supremacy comes from this ignorance.

What you don't know can definitely hurt you.

Not that simple.  Many white supremacists are well educated and know history.  They just choose to subvert it for their own purposes.

As for world history and world civilizations, almost all are based on one groups supremacy over another.  Most of it white supremacy.  As in France's long history of dominating other cultures for the benefit of France.  Asia, Africa and even America for a period.

What they do not know is that we can rise above history and make the world a better place.

But there is a world of difference in public schools in different states. She grew up and was educated in Montana and she couldn't believe how much stricter the standards were and the quality of education was in New York State

Who grew up in Montana?  Regardless, the original post inferred that public education would prevent children from becoming racists.  The standards and quality are not really relevant to the original post.

One of long time goals of GOPers is to divide the Hispanics and the African-Americans.

Well I don't know for sure why she did that-- there could have been some personal problem with her.

But considering the climate and environment of racism in America, there are black people who have a lot of the same attitudes as racist white people.

There's been a lot of discussion as to the fact that white people will not be in the majority in this country with the Coalition of people of color being in the majority.  There's been a lot of ink and press about how this frightens white people and that's why a lot of them voted for trump.

At the same time, there's a number of black people who tremendously resent the inroads that the Hispanic population has made in America.

Some black people may see them as foreigners who are crowding them out,  as the chief minority, and who are Johnny come latelys.

They probably have more contact with Hispanics than white people do and they may resent the intrusion into their Communities and into their lives.

I don't think we can give  your GOP that much credit for black resentment of Latinos.

Minorities have been fighting for the crumbs for a long time in this country.

Merchandising and the general Society have catered to the Latinos in terms of the media and usage of their language.

Black people had to fight for decades to get recognition in the mainstream Society.

 

But as far as this particular black woman is concerned, she could be a trump supporter or she could simply be a person who isn't very nice.

You have to particularly remind yourself that black people are individuals and they have individual viewpoints and needs.

You can't always classify them or stereotyped them as a group.

But I have seen the resentment of black people in this country growing against Latino people for decades.

They're all ignorant, Princess.  

That is being too kind.    I was watching an episode of Wagon Train and there were yout typical racist cowboys that were unkind (at best),  to the son of an Indian chief;    The wagon master (Ward Bond),  explains to the young man that there is still a lot of ignorance.    

My point being that way back being racist could be explained by ignorance,  but in the 21st century, that doesn't apply.   These a-holes are not ignorant.  They know exactly what they are doing,  and why they are doing it.

Papa John’s founder accused of using n-word in conference call about how to avoid bad PR incidents http://hill.cm/hW3Y7aQ 

Image result for papa john

It was only about 7 months ago that Papa John's founder, John Schnatter, was forced to resign as CEO from the company he founded, as a result of negative comments he made about the black protesting NFL players. 

Reportedly he blamed these players for the drop in his pizza sales because Papa John's was sponsoring the NFL at the time. Papa John's stock fell sharply, as a result of his comments.

 Now Schnatter has been forced to resign from the University of Louisville's Board of Trustees due to this most recent pejorative comment. He has apologized for the comment.

He doesn't seem to know anything at all about Puerto Rico in that it's a US commonwealth and may become our 51st state in the future and if that happens, the flag in question will be a state flag and just in case anyone ask...

I bet this rich man never imagined that his racism would force him out of these positions of power.

Records obtained suggest a former chief pressured some officers into targeting black people to clear open cases.

“...if you see anybody black walking through our streets & they have somewhat of a record

arrest them so we can pin them for all burglaries”

CVS apologizes after manager calls cops on black customer

CVS Health is apologizing after a black customer says a white store manager in Chicago accused her of trying to use a phony coupon.

Camilla Hudson posted cellphone video of manager Morry Matson calling police Friday night. Matson, who apparently plans to run for City Council and was a state delegate for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, appears very nervous and his left hand shakes as he talks to police.

Hudson says on Facebook that Matson challenged her when she tried to use a manufacturer’s coupon for a free product. While Matson was talking to police on the phone, Hudson said she would wait for officers to come to the store..........

Using coupons while black--

Trump supporter calls cops on black woman for allegedly using a fraudulent coupon....

 

A CVS store manager in Chicago, who was a trump state delegate in the 2016 election, called the cops on a black customer who he claimed had a fraudulent coupon.

Can you imagine the management calling the police every time you go to a store and you try to get a discount or a free product or service with a coupon, but you accidentally or inadvertently have the wrong coupon?

Press accounts said that the store manager was shaking when he called the police. 

Then Three police officers from "The Wrong Coupon Squad" showed up. LMREO

My guess is this store manager will really be shaking when they fire him.

 

*Addendum-- The CVS manager is Morry Matson. He's running for Alderman in the 48th Ward of Chicago with a law-and-order platform.  Matson is also the president of the Log Cabin Republicans in Illinois, a political conservative group supporting LGBTQ rights.

Well, just wrap your brain around all that.

CVS May Fire Morry, but he is still running for Alderman in the 48th Ward in Chicago, if anybody cares.

The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners cited Morry for forging a petition in 2016 when he worked at Walgreens.

 

Well, good luck to Morry and I hear they're still hiring at Walmart. LOL

It looks as though Morry will be free now to go after that Walmart opening.

Hopefully he won't need a reference. LOL

But the public airing of this kind of serial, personal discrimination by white individuals is not a bad thing.
